Shedstore is proud to be one of the UK’s leading retailers of wooden garden sheds. We have an immense selection of timber sheds for sale, including options for every taste, style, and budget. Though plastic and metal options are growing in popularity, we’re confident that wood storage sheds will remain commonplace in UK gardens for many years to come. The traditional choice, wooden sheds remain ever popular thanks to their traditional aesthetics, affordability, and durability.
When it comes to wooden and timber sheds, understanding the type of cladding used is crucial. Cladding serves as the protective covering of the shed, safeguarding the interior and stored items from weather damage. We’ll explore the three most popular types of cladding, Overlap, Shiplap, and Tongue and Groove, below:
Overlap sheds are the cheapest wooden sheds we have available. Overlap designs are constructed using horizontally overlapping slats of timber affixed to a framework, with vertical support battens for extra strength. Overlap cladding is typically 7 or 8mm thick, which is perfectly suited to provide protection against British weather. Almost all of our overlap sheds are manufactured by Forest Garden, a leading brand in wooden garden sheds. In addition, they manufacture wooden garden fencing, log cabins, summer houses, trellis, and a wide range of accessories.
Shiplap cladding sheds are constructed using interlocking timber boards; the build is very similar to that of tongue and groove. The key difference is that shiplap sheds also have a recess cut into each board, creating a slight overlap which allows rainwater to drain away quickly.
Tongue & groove sheds are the highest quality buildings we sell; they are constructed from 12mm thick interlocking timber boards. This design creates a tight seal which protects against draughts and moisture. Tongue and groove cladding is also smoothly planed, creating a high-quality finish. Many of our larger buildings are built using tongue and groove cladding.
Shiplap and tongue and groove sheds come complete with cladding. This provides extra protection from the elements, increased security, and aesthetic visual appeal. These wood storage sheds cost more but are a preferred construction method where the budget allows.

Proper care and maintenance are essential for the longevity of your timber shed. One common issue to address is rotting wood. To prevent this, consider the following steps:
For further maintenance tips, we’ve provided some additional ideas below:
To keep your wooden shed dry, ensure proper ventilation to allow fresh air circulation, preventing moisture build-up. If this doesn’t work and your shed has mains power, consider using a dehumidifier or electric heater to help control damp and mould.
Generally, small wooden and timber sheds do not require planning permission unless they infringe on someone else's property or violate local regulations. However, it's always advisable to check with your local authority. When placing your shed, consider raising it at least four inches off the ground for sufficient air circulation and to prevent dampness.
Whether to paint or stain your shed boils down to personal preference. Both methods protect and preserve the wood, but they offer different aesthetics. Paint provides a thicker, bolder finish, while stain soaks into the wood, maintaining the wood's natural grain.
